Apple to remove signature iPhone feature in iOS 13 for Groundbreaking Update

Apple logoLike every other major update, iOS 13 is projected to bring only a handful of new features, but several other smaller refinements, and a new rumor provides us with an early look at one such improvement.

Max Weinbach of XDA claims that Apple wants to ditch its several-years-old volume HUD in iOS 13, most likely in exchange for a more subtle volume controller similar to the one on Android.

Details arent available right now, but it looks like the Cupertino-based tech giant has finally decided to listen to criticism, as this has long been one of the features that iPhone users called for Apple to change.

While we still dont know how Apple plans to refine the volume controller, theres no way it gets worse, as its not only outdated but also ugly and against the concept of modern design.

The same rumor suggests that Apple wants iOS 13 to be a groundbreaking release, but for now, no other details where shared. Obviously, Apple says pretty much the same thing about every iOS update, so I expect iOS 13 to align with its predecessors when it comes to the ratio of new features and more subtle refinements.

The same schedule is very likely to be used too, which means that iOS 13 should make it to developers at WWDC in the summer, with public betas to be published shortly after that.

The stable version of this update will go live in September and will be pre-installed on the new iPhones launching in 2019.

Earlier this year, it was speculated that iOS 13 could give up on a series of iPhones as Apple wants to put the focus on its new-generation models. The rumor indicated that all iPhones prior to the iPhone 7 could lose support, though confirmation in this regard has never been offered.
